OU weight room stands out to DE Points

Jordan Points (Heath, Texas/Rockwell-Heath) is old school.

The defensive end prospect spent March 3 on Oklahoma's for the Sooners’ junior day. And OU’s facilities made a memorable impression on him.

“The stuff they’re doing in the weight room, I really liked that,” Points said. “The weight room is cool because it just looks like it’s someone’s garage ... and that’s what I like about it, it’s old school.”

Points particularly liked the air pressure system the Sooners use in their complex and the fact the players work out in position groups.

The Texas prep standout doesn’t have an offer from the Sooners but boasts offers from SMU, TCU and North Texas. He’s also receiving interest from Texas, Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Houston and Purdue.

Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel has been the main recruiter for the Sooners.

“He’s a pretty cool guy,” said Points, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound junior.

Points has watched most of the Sooners' televised games in recent years and thinks he would be a good fit in OU’s defensive system.

“They like pass rushing defensive ends and use them to stop the run,” Points said. “I’d like to play like that.”

Overall, Points left Norman with thoughts of returning this spring.

“I really liked the atmosphere there, it’s pretty impressive,” he said. “I’d like to come see them practice. I don’t know what my schedule is yet but they’re definitely one of the schools [I want to see].”
